Here are a couple of useful tools to track wildfires and the nasty smoke they generate.

Windy for Android and IOS.

https://windy.app/

Many layers, the base one is wind direction and strength, you can show all sorts of extra info like Air Quality, the cool thing is that it will predict four days into the future and you can play the video to watch the smoke move. So you can plan a move, or get out the HEPA filter and crank it up to High. This is what the AQ in my area will look like in 24 hours.

Fire Mappers. This is just one of several wildfire maps.

Here is a big one along the CA / OR border. It shows the perimeter and also “hot spots” which are thermal readings from space. Clicking on the fire brings you a pop up with info on size and % containment.

In addition that site has locally produced fire maps with evacuation routes and road closures, and other useful links.

Stay safe. Washington suffered over the Labor Day weekend with more acreage burned (330,000) than in the previous 12 entire fire seasons combined. Hurricane strength winds did not help, all fire fighting airplanes were grounded due to smoke and impenetrable dust.

Here is what the west coast will look like Sunday..... Oh my.....

OK, this one is really disturbing. 

Real Time Air Quality Index Map

Here is Oregon. Anything above 200 is very uncomfortable, above 300 is nasty dangerous.
